Chiropractor Treatments & Sports Medicine Injuries

Treating a sports medicine patient with tennis elbow is done by using a Gua Sha instrument (traditional Chinese medical treatment meaning “to scrape sha-bruises”). The technique is known as instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) and is highly effective for soft tissue injuries and pain.

Treating tennis elbow can also be done using class IV laser therapy, a painless modality that stimulates healing within damaged muscles and tendons.

Using the Kinesio Taping method is another way to the support the shoulder and encourage proper scapula (shoulder blade) positioning and movement.
